Pros:
This briht ledlight is very usefull in artdesign and all kinds of situations
where the color and intensity must be
completely controllable.
More strips can be mounted after each other, the driver does not give troubles.
When using more than 2 strips per driver, the small powertransistors need some cooling.
Because the system is PWM controlled ,the efficiency is superb.
Cons:
The strip itselve is frgile, so bending in sharp edges can destroy the delicate contacts of the smd RGB leds and the resistors.
In the white-mode, the red is a little bit too strong so a pink-white light is
the effect.
Other:
The Philips multicolor light wich costs about 250 USD does give a small part of the light , wich can be produced by this ribbon , wich costs about 1/10 of the price.
Owners of aquariums can cut the ribbons in smaller peaces and mount them in another configuration.
I have done so and the light is very attractive, uses also less power than fluorescent tubes.
Bottomline:
For inventors and designers a lot of possibilities for low costs.
Even when you want to desolder the RGB leds and make a PCB with them is cheap.
The leds have outstanding uniformity in
color, the driver alone can be used for
many projects,
the stable and reliable electronics can be used with other ledsystems, like CREE.
Only your imagination limits the possibilities of this product.
